Today, the Internet is all you will need to peruse hundreds of new skin care products that all promise better skin tone and youthful looks. However, there is always a catch: you have to spend a lot of money on skincare products, and there is absolutely no guarantee that they will work.No matter how fancy a product is, it won’t vouch for its own results. No skincare product in the market will offer a solid guarantee on effectiveness. In the end, it’s all sales talk, and people are left to contemplate whether or not they should continue with their skin care regimens.
If you don’t want to spend a ton of cash on weird skincare products that promise everything (including the moon and the stars), I invite you to the world of facial exercises.Facial exercises are not widely supported by the medical community because, quite frankly, the medical establishment has close ties with the pharmaceutical industry.This is a well-known fact; we can’t do anything about the relationship of these two industries/institutions, but we can make a choice not to support something if it is not really needed.
As I have stated before, I am a firm believer in natural health – if nature created a problem, then there is probably a natural solution for it, too. In my case, I decided to opt for facial exercises to keep my face youthful and toned.What is the science behind facial exercises? I’m no doctor or scientist, but I definitely can help you understand how facial exercises can help keep your face looking young. The human face is actually supported and animated by more than sixteen different muscles. Each muscle has a definite function and, ideally, all the muscles in the face should be able to help you live a fuller life by allowing you to express emotions.
The face is the door that leads to a person’s mind. It is the first thing that we look at when we interact with others, and that is probably the reason why there is pressure to keep it looking young. The skin that covers the face has a huge impact on a person’s appearance. However, it is very important to note here that the youthfulness of your face is not wholly dependent on just your skin. Your skin is not “floating” on top of your face. It is attached to, or associated with, other tissues: mainly, the facial muscles. Now, it is important for you to realize early on that as a person ages, his muscles also start becoming looser and eventually, gravity does its work and a person’s muscles (including his facial muscles) will begin to yield to the pull of gravity. If you don’t believe in the connection between gravity and your body’s tissues, take a look at your own arm when you raise it slightly.
Most people will notice slight sagging on their arm when they raise it. This sagging tissue is clear evidence that gravity has a continuous effect on the body’s tissues. If you are overweight, gravity will have an even more obvious effect on your appearance. And, believe it or not, gravity still affects your face even if it is “up there.” As we age, the muscles on the face begin to slide down (I know, this sounds terrible) and, as it slides down, it also modifies the general appearance of the skin, which is on the outside. If your facial muscles are not toned, your skin cannot be naturally toned. You cannot “wish” for firmer skin; you have to exercise your facial muscles to keep them as supple.
